Ann Waiguru
Devolution Cabinet Secretary Ann Waiguru has vowed to sue opposition leader Raila Odinga over demeaning remarks he made on Sunday during a rally in Kibera.

The minister demanded a written apology from Raila for linking him with corruption at the National Youth Service. She claimed that the former Prime Minister’s remarks were in bad taste and were meant to portray her as corrupt and operating with immunity.

Responding to Waiguru’s demands, Raila, through his Lawyer Paul Mwangi, dared the Minister to proceed to court, arguing that what he said in Kibera about the Minister did not deviate from the truth. He warned the Cabinet

Secretary against making a mistake of suing him, threatening to reveal grand corruption at NYS and the Ministry of Devolution.

Last Week, when the minister addressed a press conference she agreed for the first time that, indeed, there is corruption in her. She seized the opportunity by naming 21 ministry officials who have allegedly swindled over Sh 800 million from National Youth Service.

However, Kenyans took to twitter accusing the President of protecting her. They demanding her resignation just like the ministers who were in the list of shame presented in Parliament by the President.
